Leslie Carroll Designs
Our jewelry designs are a collaborative process--a dialogue during which we enhance each other's artistic vision. We have frequently traveled together to places such as Bali, Thailand, and Ethiopia. During these journeys, we have encountered talented artisans and gained a heightened appreciation for the art of jewelry-making.
On a visit to India, some years ago, we were mainly inspired by the vibrant colors, textures, and gems that we saw. Upon returning to the United States, we began to design our jewelry, collecting and combining colorful stones from around the world: Peruvian chalcedony; sapphires from Sri Lanka; Czech crystals; tribal silver from Thailand.
With unconventional and unexpected stone pairings, our designs are bold and unique. Our necklaces feature semi-precious stones with freshwater pearls, sterling silver, and 18-Karat gold. Each handcrafted piece is one-of-a-kind and echoes the beauty and the sophistication of the global vistas that have inspired us.
We are honored to have had our creations featured on NBC, and Martha Stewart Weddings, and worn on the runway in collaboration with top designers. We are especially delighted to be embraced by stylish women around the world.
